It feels like forever since the LEGO for Adults set was first revealed back in July, but 10290 Pickup Truck is now live both online and in-store. Weighing in at 1,677 pieces for £119.99 / $129.99 / €129.99, the dark red truck is the latest vehicle in a subtheme that also includes 10265 Ford Mustang and 10295 Porsche 911.
It’s also the first of those large-scale cars not to be based on a specific, real-world vehicle, although it does carry all the hallmarks of plenty of real 1950s-style pickups, with features including opening doors, removable wooden railings and a step-side bed.
It’s technically also a seasonal set, insofar as its included mini-builds can set the scene for a year-round display. Among those accessories are a watering can, a crate of pumpkins and a festive wreath, enabling 10290 Pickup Truck to stay relevant on your shelf no matter the time of year.
This is also the third large-scale vehicle to land on shelves in 2021, following 10295 Porsche 911 and 10279 Volkswagen T2 Camper Van, in what’s turned out to be a bumper year for the LEGO for Adults (formerly Creator Expert) brand.
